Nanodevice Maps the Angle of Light to Color and Vice Versa – IEEE Spectrum  An international team of researchers has added a small twist to typical light filters. They’ve fabricated a nanoscale device that divides incident light into its different component colors based on the direction the light is coming from. They’ve switched from making filters with equally spaced grooves to an aperiodic architecture wherein the grooves are not equally spaced. The research

How Threat Modeling Helps Discover Security Vulnerabilities Application threat modeling can be used as an approach to secure software development, as it is a nice preventative measure for dealing with security issues, and mitigates the time and effort required to deal with vulnerabilities that may arise later throughout the application’s production life cycle. Unfortunately, it seems security has no place in
